It's that elusive letter, silently wandering to deliberately confuse us.

Virtual tours of Samlesbury Hall are available. https://www.samlesburyhall.co.uk
Under heading History on website:
"1185 The de Samlesbury family
The first recorded lord of Samlesbury was Cospatric de Samlesbury."
He was thought to be of mixed Norse, Saxon and Irish descent. That just about sums up my maternal lineage. King Robert the Bruce raided the place while Lancastrians were busy falling out among themselves.
Another part of the history section tells about the dismembered body of martyred Saint John Southworth being sewn together and taken to Douai.

And to confuse matters so to speak this is from the Parish Records of St John's PRESTON don't you just love Family History  :D

Perhaps they had a house in town? Or the lady died during a visit. When was the burial?

Burial of Robert Singleton just doesn't cut it!

Yes The Blessed St John Southworth persecuted due to being a Catholic
Think his body now lies in Westminster

His Father was John Southworth allegedly and Grandfather Sir John Southworth - High Sheriff of Lancashire
